Nicky Clarke, with over 30 years' experience and regarded among the top high-flying celebrity hair stylists in the world, approached Living It Up with the objective to refresh and refit the interior space of his popular salons in both Mayfair, London & Mailbox, Birmingham. Nicky came to us with a short timeframe to minimise salon distruption and a vision of creating a smart and luxurious space where clients could feel comfortable throughout their consultation. With the furniture being in high traffic salons, reliability was top of Nicky’s list of priorities; this created the perfect opportunity for him to visit our 13 room salon furniture showroom based in Leicestershire, to get hands on with our collections and test them on appeal, quality and longevity.
After much deliberation, Nicky settled on our popular Lenore styling chair (Mayfair salon) & Caprice styling chair (Mailbox salon), for their “gutsy feel” and versatility to work in both traditional and modern salons. Finally, Nicky chose our Jasmine & Sofia washpoints to complete his vision and initial brief of luxury and high end.
“I think that the client has to feel comfortable and I think you have to be aware of the fact that, going forward, they [styling chairs] should look as good as possible for as long as possible. I think that’s really key.”
"I think it’s important to see from the website the things that you like but you can’t beat being able to see it and touch it and move it. Even down to the quality of the chrome, you wouldn’t be able to tell that on a website and I think that’s the sort of thing that you need to be able to see that there is a level of quality that is going to suit."
